Finn Lynch Medals In Dun Laoghaire

#LaserEuro2013 - Finn Lynch has taken bronze in the Men's Radial Worlds, silver in the Europeans and gold in the U21 category at the Laser European and World Championships in Dun Laoghaire.

It's a second medal for hosts the National Yacht Club, who have been staging the 324-boat championship all this week. Minutes earlier this afternoon Annalise Murphy sailed to a European title in the women's Laser Radial division

As for Lynch, only this morning The Irish Times was favouring his chances in the gold fleet after fellow Irish sailor Fionn Lyden slipped down the leaderboard.

The 17-year-old from Bennekerry, Co Carlow sailed consistently throughout the 12 regatta races with nine top-five finishes, including two race wins.

The Carlow Laser racer was our sailor of the month for July last year and it looks like there's no stopping the youngster's progress.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
